Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...in Hamilton Township. Incidental to this business, he is also President of the Trenton Flour Mills Company in Trenton, Vice President of the New Jersey China Pottery Company, Treasurer of Cochran Drugau & Company, and a director of the Broad Street Bank and of the Mercer Trust Company. He was the first Treasurer of the Interstate Fair Association serving three years, and as one of its directors. Mr. Hutchinson's political career began with his election to the House of Assembly in 1895-'96. His plurality of 3,273 in '95 was more than doubled in '96. His Assembly work pointed him out as a logical candidate for a seat in the State Senate. Nominated by the republicans of the county, be was elected in 1889 over his democratic opponent, Bayard Stockton; and in the canvass for re-election in 1901 he defeated ex-Judge Robert S. Woodruff. During his second term in the Senate he was its President, and discharged the functions of that office with an even hand that won for him a resolution of thanks from his colleagues even of the Democratic minority. Soon after the expiration of his second term in the Senate, Mr. Hutchinson was appointed State Road Commissioner by Governor Stokes. His management of the State Road Department was marked by many changes and reforms. Mr. Hutchinson's first election to Congress was achieved in 1914, when he defeated Allan B. Walsh, the Democrat, who had preceded him at Washington and who sought re-election, by a plurality of 3.312. In 1916 Congressman Hutchinson was renominated and re-elected. MILLER REESE HUTCHISON, E.
